I always thought the best type of beer was "free"?

Any idea as to how it will be handled? Everywhere that serves it can give it away and be reimbursed or just a few select places etc...

Prolly reserve all the dent and ding cases they gave to employees as the "free beer" for the promo.

Man Law #6: Moaning about the brand of free beer is forbidden. However complain at will if the temperature is unsuitable.

If the bud is cold, fine. But if there is something better around me, i'll be taking that instead

I once walked into a beer distributor and was asked if I wanted a free sample of Moosehead Light Lime.......I declined....as did the guy who walked in after I did.....and the guy after him.

Moose Light Lime was actually very good, for a light beer. But I was brewing wihout reserves on a HOT day. So I picked up a 12 pack. It was like a malty-lime soda pop. I'd drink it again, and pay for it.

I wouldn't pay for anything from AHBIbev. Though, if it were free, I might get as much as I could, to keep anyone else from drinking it.

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
